  • Thanks for the reply. When should I use this method of making fields readonly vs using sugarlogic and custom dependencies? Or is there no real difference?

  • There definitely is a difference. This particular approach is only feasible if you are only concerned about the behavior of the field within the main web app and only within that specific view. In other words, that same field would appear as an editable field were you to look at it via SugarCRM Mobile.

    Likewise, this approach has some greater flexibility in other areas when compared to dependencies. For example, you could examine the current user and determine whether the field should or shouldn't be read only based solely off of that.

    In short, there are some trade-offs with each approach and Mobile tends to be the area of concern. If you are not using Mobile (or don't plan on doing so), which option you choose is a lesser concern.

  • Thanks for helping us.

    I've got the follwing code to make the fields read-only mode. It used to work on versions before 7.8.

    I've added the this._renderHtml and this._renderFields to get part of it work.

    Once you open the record (in this case an Opportunity) and the condition is true, the Cancel, Save and Edit buttons are visible, all at the same time.

    Cancel, Save and Edit buttons are visible when conditions are true.

    What would be the best approach to make it work properly?

       extendsFrom: 'RecordView',
       initialize: function (options) {
       this._super('initialize', [options]);
       this.model.on('data:sync:complete', this.readOnlyFieldsOpp, this);

    _renderHtml: function(options) {
       this._super("_renderHtml", [options]);

    readOnlyFieldsOpp: function() {
       var readonly = this.model.get('opp_readonly_c');

       if (readonly === true){
       _.each(this.model.fields, function(field) {
       if ( != "opp_readonly_c"){
